As someone who has gotten multiple viral videos before on YouTube, I can personally testify that it is one of the best feelings you will ever experience. The rush of views, subscribers, & comments are unreal. And it’s even better if your YouTube channel is monetized.
I still get viral videos a few times a month, but you will never forget your first time getting a viral video. In this article, we are going to show you how you can increase the chances of you getting a viral video on YouTube by taking advantage of trends.
We will do this by covering 4 topics.
- The power of compound interest
- The importance of YouTube trends
- Creating & developing systems
- Getting your first viral video
We have a lot of information to cover, so let’s begin!
The Power Of Compound Interest
What would happen if you great great great grandma didn’t marry your great x3 grandpa? Well in the moment, nothing would happen. She would just go find another guy to marry and call it a day.
But let’s say that did happen. Well now you wouldn’t exist. Neither would your parents, siblings and a big chunk of your family tree.
Isn’t it crazy how much can happen with one simple action that may seem harmless in the moment? This is the power of compound interest. When you think of the words compound interest, the first thing that comes to mind is probably money but it applies to our actions too.
Here go a graph to show you how that looks like.
As you can see, small actions today may show little to no sign of results. But with the help with time, you will start to see your results pour in overtime. This is a very important thing to know when looking to get viral videos on YouTube.
We rely 100% on this model to get viral videos in both the short & long term.
The Importance Of YouTube Trends
When applying the compound interest law with YouTube, it is important to create videos focus on recent trends within your niche. Doing this will make it easier for you to get a viral video on YouTube.
Why do trends work so well?
The reason why trends work is because if you can catch a trend early enough, your video can rank high for those keywords due to the low competition for it. After you secure a good position on YouTube search, you want to wait for the trend to blow up.
When a trend blows, A LOT of people are going to search for it & your video will be on the front page if done correctly. This is a great opportunity to send a lot of traffic to your channel to turn them into loyal subscribers.

In the next section, we are going to show you how to combined compound interest & trends with systems to get your first viral video.
Creating & Developing Systems
If you look at the most successful YouTube channel, you will notice that they have systems in place. Systems are useful on YouTube because they allow you to post videos in mass without sacrificing video content quality. This is key if you are looking to getting your first viral video within the next 3 months.
So how do I develop a system for YouTube? First of all, systems on YouTube are video series. Here go an example below.
Each video is almost like a ticking bomb. Some may go off, others won’t. The only thing that dictates this is time. The best way to improve the chances of one of your videos going viral is to post 2-3 times a week & focus your subjects around some type of recent trend.
Doing all of this, will help you get your first viral video on YouTube. The first time I did this for my personal channel, I went from 2k to 250k videos/day within a week of applying this strategy.
I can’t promise you these types of results, but they are possible if you follow the instructions above, and put in the work.
